Delft University of Technology Selects SimActive Software
October 20, 2012
SimActive Inc., is pleased to announce that Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is using Correlator3D™ for a research project in urban hydrology named HydroCity. Together with partners from Dutch academia, the private sector and several municipalities, TU Delft's goal is to model phenomena such as flooded streets and basements after heavy rainfall.
The project involves the generation of photogrammetric digital surface models (DSM) and comparisons to LIDAR through 3D change detection. SimActive’s software is used to generate accurate dense DSMs based on high resolution 3-4 cm stereo digital aerial photography.
“After analyzing the quality, processing speeds and simplicity of operation, TU Delft selected SimActive’s Correlator3D™ for performing this project,” said Prof. Ben Gorte, at TU Delft. “We are very pleased with the way the software is performing all its required tasks”.
